A healing baby’

Hollywood Star John Travolta’s wife Kelly Preston is expecting a baby boy, it has been revealed.

The couple’s representative confirmed they will look forward to welcoming a son later this year, almost two years after their 16-year-old son Jett died after suffering a seizure during a family holiday to the Bahamas. Friends of the couple say they are confident the new addition may help ease their pain over the loss of Jett.

“This baby is such a healing baby,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted a family friend as saying.

Preston, 47, and Travolta, 56, had a get together for a special baby shower at the Beverly Hills Peninsula Hotel in Los Angeles on August 20. He recently revealed his wife’s pregnancy came after years of trying to conceive again and that the baby is “a miracle”. The couple, who have a 10-year-old daughter Ella Bleu, announced they were expecting the child in May.
